82-year-old Carmen Dell'Orefice can still give
any 20-year-old model a run for their money as
she appears in New You magazine's spring issue.
In the issue, the model discusses her 70-year
long career (she started modeling when she was
13), and gives some perspective on today's
"We're all works of art in progress. I'm still
figuring out how to do the job, and who I am
[after 70 years]!"
After all these years spent in the fashion
industry Carmen has seen its ins and outs and
had a wisdom we all can only envy.
In perfecting the art of modeling, she tells New
You, "When you understand how to do that
dance, when the photographer says, 'Hold it, do
it,' and you know you're getting it right. Oh, the
fun. It is fun."
